As we embark on this years edition of the South Lyon Lake Street Cruise-In, we thought it might be fun to take a look back at where we started and how we’ve grown.
It really started over a couple beers at the Lake Street Tavern on a snowy cold day in 2011, and talk turned to the summer car shows that Cowtown Cruisers, the Spark Plugs, and Brown's Root Beer would put on back in the day. We thought, could we revive that tradition and create our own version of a classic car cruise-in? Ideas were jotted down a cocktail napkin and the South Lyon Lake Street Cruise-In was born.
We teamed up with the First Presbyterian Church on Lake Street for additional lawn parking at the corner of Reese and Lake Streets. They have been an integral part of our efforts. Each year we make a donation to a local South Lyon charity. Past recipients include: South Lyon's Families Building Faith, Operation Injured Soldiers, Active Faith, and the South Lyon Community Education Foundation.
In July 2018, we created the first South Lyon Lake Street Cruise-In all day Motorfest which brought over 350 classic cars and a huge crowd to downtown South Lyon.
We thank the South Lyon City Council, South Lyon Police and Fire Departments, Department of Public Works, and the Downtown Development Authority for their continued support.
